Making new friends!
Dear Mom and Dad,
Tonight was GOLDFISH MINI class! This is Mattie, one of five of us in the class. Nana tried to get a photo of all of us together tonight, but I CRIED! I am thinking it was either that I don’t like sharing my MR NIKON photo ops, or maybe it is that I have not been sleeping well for about a week now, and was just plain exhausted. I had fallen asleep in the car, and there was so much traffic on the way, that we were late! I like doing things in GUILLIANNA TIME… for example, my breakfast, well this is not a quick thing, I like taking my time, and eating very, very slowly… I’m not one to be rushed… believe me… and if rushed well… all I can say is “tear!” OR TEARS!
Mattie is one year old. She has been a mini since four months old I believe so I could have her be my mentor. She goes under water. And she is nice!
Thank you very much to Mattie’s parents for letting my show off my new friend and classmate, and another MOST ADORABLE face on my website. I don’t know if they read my love letters, but if so… thank you. Maybe I can sneak a group photo in next week so you can see all of us… we are so cute in the water. It really is fun… EXCEPT TODAY… I was the one crying. And no they were not ‘happy tears’. They were , “I was tardy to class, and tired” tears.
I was just not myself at swim class which is sad since Great Aunt Pam and Cuz Brit came to see me. THEY TOO FOUGHT CRAZY TRAFFIC AND CAME TO SEE ME BE A BIT FUSSY… oh and by the way, can I just say, it is really a good thing that I haven’t reached that I AM TOO COOL STAGE, you know that stage when you are embarrassed to be “different”. Or embarrassed because you are the only MINI there with a Poppy, a Nana, and her BLACK BEAST of a camera. (WHICH IS GOING OFF A BAZILLION TIMES,LIKE SHE IS A PAPARAZZI), Four Aunties, an Uncle, a Cuz and one Great Aunt… whilst every other MINI has their GMP(Goldfish Mini-Partner) and maybe one other parent there to watch. I COME WITH AN ENTOURAGE….. and as I said, thankful I am not the easily embarrassed type. All I am saying is, Goldfish mini school, at Camp Nana is like a spectator sport and I am the MVP…. THANKFULLY… I AM AT THE STAGE WHERE I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY ENTOURAGE, AND THE MORE FOLLOWERS…. TO TAKE CARE OF MY PRINCESS NEEDS, THE BETTER…. so thank you Aunties, Uncle, Great Aunt Pam, and cousin Brit… you know how to make me feel special.
Uncle Nick and I, doing the monkey, and then practicing floating on my back again…
Seems being TARDY (eh hem Nana? ) means I missed the COLLECTING OF THE FLOATING BALLS, my favorite part, but don’t worry I will be early next week and I will be chasing balls again!
I think I told you about how we spent the weekend reorganizing my Princess Playthings… and found that the former LIBRARY at Camp has become the perfect venue for my new Princess TOY ROOM. Nana had the campers move out the big couch that was in there, leaving the love seat. Then we put all of my ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY toys in the room. The puppies however were not pleased with the renovated space…. Love Seat… Crowded Seat may be a better name…..
We can call this photo, “Liking the love seat… NOT SO MUCH! ” Here is Mr. Griff and Justice sitting cheek to cheek, and Miss Liberty… uh… no room… left out of the bonding moment. But they are good about it, and seemingly understand a Princess truly needs space.
So all in all, I had a good day. I am missing you both very much, and hope you enjoyed the photos of me at the pool today! Again Nana and Poppy really appreciate that Mattie’s mom and dad are so nice, as are all the other mommies and daddies in class. Until tomorrow, I am as always your Little Miss Adorable, your daughter, and her new friend…
Guillianna! (If I look puzzled it’s because, I know I have several toy cell phones, but how can Mattie call me if I don’t know my cell number? )
